Brian Evenson delves deeply into the pages of Chester Brown’s (Louis Riel, Paying for It) seminal comic-book Yummy Fur, from its beginnings as a mini comic to its afterlife in the graphic novels it spawned. Brian’s comics archaeology excavates the discarded fragments of Brown’s masterpiece Ed The Happy Clown, examines the never re-printed adaptions of the Gospels, considers the juxtaposition of religion and absurdism, and meditates on the pleasures of reading serialized pamphlet comic-books. The book also features a new interview with Chester Brown, shining a new spotlight on this important work.
